Earlier today, a terrorist driving a truck rammed into a group of soldiers on a Jerusalem promenade, killing four soldiers - three women and one man, all in their 20s - and injuring 15 more.
According to eyewitnesses, the truck plowed into the group at high speed, then backed up and tried to hit more. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Hamas terror group praised the attack as “heroic.”
CJP condemns and deplores acts of terror against our brothers and sisters in Israel. We pray for the recovery of the injured and send our condolences to the families of the victims. We also call upon the international community, which is so quick to condemn Israel, to clearly and unequivocally condemn this heinous act of terror, as well as, the incitement and provocation that leads to these murderous acts.
